MISTYCUFFS. 2topia’s Wild Laverda Ghost Strike 668 Restomod

Written by Andrew Jones I won’t lie. The first thing I did for this story was hit up the Google oracle and ask the god of the internet, “What the hell is a Laverda Ghost Strike 668?” An esoteric model, even amongst its quaint Italian brethren, the bike was seemingly named after a Steven Seagal movie. And just like the movie itself, its yellow and black plastic looks have probably not aged as well as they could have. But what if a customiser embraced all that plastic and 90’s posturing and add...

Vespa Scooters Retain Over 72 Percent of Their Value After 3 Years of Ownership

The Scooters Retain Their Value Better Than Anything Else Can you think of a vehicle that would retain 72.1 percent of its value over three years of ownership? According to data from J.D. Power and Associates, Vespa scooters do just that. This year was the first year that J.D. Power tracked resale value and published a study on its findings. The published study was only on cars, but The New York Times reported that data in the study extended to two-wheeled vehicles, too. The brand sitting at th...

Nothing symbolises Italian urban chic quite like the Vespa. But in the city that gave birth to them, the diehards suddenly have a fight on their handsCorrado Nicora is talking about the flyest Vespa in Genoa: his own. For his 50th birthday, the secretary of Vespa Club Genoa decided that a new scooter was just what he needed. It had to be the tangerine GTS 300, but there was a problem: it was only on sale outside Italy. He was on the verge of shelling out the extra cash for the imported model whe...

Four-Links – Museo Piaggio, Paul Bracq, Monaro 50th, Frankenstang

Established in 2000, the Piaggio Museum in Pontedera recently got treated to a full renovation. It’s now, according to Piaggio, the largest Italian museum dedicated to two-wheeled transportation. That’s apparently discounting the space provided for the Ape 70th anniversary exhibit. We mentioned Paul Bracq in the Heuliez 914 story this week in passing, but he deserves a deeper dive, which, coincidentially, Don Andreina at Curbside Classic recently provided in two parts.
